In honor of all the folks holiday shopping this weekend, we present the Caturday favorite “A Xmas Shopper,” a 1914 photo print from our Mid-Manhattan Picture Collection. We’ve posted this photo several times, but come on - it never gets old. Happy Caturday and happy shopping (PS - don’t forget to check our online Library Shop for amazing gift ideas that also support NYPL. For example, need a nice Hanukkah gift? How about the NYPL publication Jews in America: From New Amsterdam to the Yiddish Stage?)!
The Thorncrown Chapel
Architect architect E. Fay Jones, an apprentice to Frank Lloyd Wright, designed the Thorncrown Chapel near Eureka Springs, Arkansas. The non-denominational chapel is a shining example of organic architecture, a philosophy of architecture which promotes harmony between human habitation and the natural world.
